GRANTS PASS, Ore., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Police in Oregon said they arrested a woman who allegedly robbed a bank and then picked her daughters up from elementary school on the way home.

Grants Pass police said Erica Fay Anderson, 37, walked into the Umpqua Bank branch at about 2:15 p.m. Monday and handed a teller a note demanding cash, The (Portland) Oregonian reported Thursday.

Anderson left with an undisclosed amount of cash and rode off in a car being driven by alleged accomplice Joshua Kemp Deeter Tseu, police said.

Investigators said the pair stopped on their way back to Anderson's home to pick up her two daughters from elementary school.

A description of the car and its license plate by a witness led police to Anderson's house, where the two suspects were arrested. The daughters were turned over to the Department of Human Services.

Anderson and Tseu were charged with second-degree robbery and first-degree theft.
